Diane Sawyer Versus 'Too Rich' Romney

Much is made about Romney's not being perceived as a common man. Well, I'm a common man, and I certainly don't want anyone with just my common-man knowledge running this country! Romney is not considered an average guy, because he is a great success in life, and not many average men are so successful. Not only is he successful professionally and financially, but also in the home and Church; in education and accomplishment; in community and political office; in morals, ethics, and decency. He is successful in using his time and means to benefit those less-fortunate than he, as his many years of unpaid, selfless service to others in his Church and community attest. Folks, I'll take Mitt Romney over the average man, Anyday!

Don't sell yourself short. We "common people" have more specialized knowledge than we know. I'd love to ask Romney (and Obama) simple questions like the horsepower and torque ratings of a Chrysler Hemi as used in the Dodge Ram 1500 pickup, the muzzle velocity of a .375 H&H Magnum, and the yards per carry average of the last 10 Heisman Trophy winners. Heck, I'd just like to hear their responses...

I'm thinking "deer in the headlights"!

Republican strategists should generally be wary of campaign advice from liberals -- and when it's from the media, generally becomes definitely. Washington Post political writer Chris Cillizza recently suggested Mitt Romney's general-election strategy should start with getting a "positive first introduction" to voters through the liberal media because "only the national media can provide that megaphone and serve as a sort of validator for him."

How hard did he laugh after he wrote that?

No Republican should think he could end-run the liberal media establishment entirely and not suffer damage. Ask Dick Cheney. On the other hand, no...
